Family Rental for a Wedding
We enjoyed staying at the house for a family wedding. The house is large and we never felt on top of each other with the numerous bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is modern and spacious.
Location was a plus, a short walk to the bike trail and the shopping areas. We used the two bikes everyday. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants to be close to town.

Great House - lots of space, prime location
This house is great and offers all of the basics you could ask for in a rental. The house is a little out of date but the space makes up for it. The house was clean and cosy. Would highly recommend if you have little kids or a big family. Location is amazing! Walking distance to Worth Ave and the beach.

Perfect for Girl's Weekend Away
My girlfriend's and I had a fabulous time staying at this wonderful house! We were able to walk to the beach, the grocery store, the shops on Worth Ave, and even across the bridge to the bars in West Palm Beach. We will definitely be making another trip down in the future!

Great Palm Beach House!
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely house! We were greeted by a bottle of wine and a great starter kit of waters, sodas, coffee etc. The house is in a great location - easy walk to Worth Ave and lots of stores/restaurants as well as the beach. The beach is beautiful...private access so it is not crowded. Overall, a wonderful place to stay in Palm Beach. Would love to stay here again!
Great Palm Beach family getaway
Our son is working in the Palm Beach area and could not get away. Since he could not go on a vacation with us, we decided to take the vacation to him. My wife, other son, daughter in law, and myself headed to Palm Beach expecting to enjoy some relaxation time together. What a great time we had, and what a lovely place to stay while we were there. Dr Joe was great to deal with and even had a surprise bottle of wine waiting in the unit on our arrival. We immediately felt at home in this cozy house. The layout is great and furnished very well, and the house was immediately inviting. One great benefit was Dr Joe working with us prior to our arrival to orient us and give us leads on places to go and things to do (including the best bet on restaurants). The house is very well located with a two block walk east to the beach, and only about a half block west to the river where a tree lined pathway leading north and south exists. When it came time to leave our main regret was not being able to meet Dr Joe due to both our schedules. An issue we hope to rectify next year, as we intend to return.

Wasn't what we expected...
We (four 50 year old ladies)just returned from spending several nights at Casa Della Rosa. Dr. Joe was very nice to deal with- but the property was not what I expected. On the positive side - it is very well located. The listing indicates 5 bathrooms. In fact there are 3 full bathrooms and two half bathrooms. There are four bedrooms upstairs, and two full bathrooms upstairs- so we had to share bathrooms which I did not anticipate. The bathrooms are very,very dated. The house needs a deep cleaning from top to bottom. The house would be fine for young children- you would not have to worry about breaking anything. The kitchen was nice- much more current than the rest of the house.There are no shades on any of the bedroom windows - only clear gauzy sheers. There is no issue from a privacy perspective - but the sun will wake you up in the morning. The house is on a corner- and gets a lot of traffic driving by on Cocoanut street. There were 4 beach chairs - two were brand new and two were old and rusty. We did not find an umbrella for the beach. It is only a short walk to the beach (5 minutes)- but bear in mind there is no bathroom etc- so you will have to walk home should the need arise.

Rated#1 Vacation Home in Florida
The location is perfect 5 minute walk out the front door to the private and nice sandy pristine beach at the end of the street. One of our children had left a brand new beach chair and towel at the beach the day we left and we offered to pay for but Dr. Joe said it was fine. He had given us the best restaurants to eat at and activities he was a great host. Thanks Dr.Joe. We walked to the great restaurants.We rode the bikes on the Lake Trail which is 6 or 7 houses from this house. This home allows privacy for everyone especially the upstairs outside decks one for each bedroom with french doors that opened up to the decks, where we often had drinks sometimes too many and ate our breakfast on the deck. With TV's and DVD players in all the bedrooms the kids loved it being able to go in their own room and watch whatever they wanted to. There was a deli down the street called Too-Jays who delivered us lunch or dinner thats a vacation!! We all got to play tennis and the kids went a few days for spanish class ,arts and crafts knitting at the Recreation Center 1 minute out the back door. We rented a car but never used it.This home was perfect for any size family and I would highly recommend this home to anyone.Fantastic!!!! Thanks Dr Joe

Best trip ever to Palm Beach
Very seldom do I take time to write a review, about anything. That being said, my family and I had an amazing time at Casa Della Rosa last October. The property itself,is well appointed, spacious, and very charming! My children absolutely loved the fact that we could walk to the beach in the mornings after breakfast. We were fortunate enough to have excellent weather our entire stay, and found ourselves spending the entire day beachside. We opted to hire Jeff, the chef that Dr. Joe referred to us. My wife had emailed him a shopping list prior to our arrival. The day of arrival, when we walked in to the home, Jeff had candles lit, music playing, refrigerator completely stocked, and the beer was ice cold!! The house was very comfortable from day 1. My wife actually commented, a number of times, how much she felt "at home" at Casa Della Rosa, as opposed to feeling like she was a guest in someone else's home. The beds were comfortable, the linens were very soft, many different options of places to just relax the day away! I found myself, on more then one occasion, lounging in the sun on the upstairs balcony...reading a great novel...whilst sipping and ice cold beer. Many thanks to Dr. Joe and Jeff for the most amazing trip we've ever had to Palm Beach. My children are still talking about it! We look forward to seeing you both again this coming Winter,!

WOW, what an amazing time my family and I had at Casa Della Rosa last October. My wife and children are still talking about wasting our days away at the beach, which is only 3 blocks away! The house is gorgeous, plenty of seating inside and out, the beds and pillows were very comfortable. My wife had requested somebody who would perhaps shop a little prior to our arrival, and Dr. Joe was quick to refer us Jeff. In addition to shopping for us prior to arrival, my wife inquired about having a few meals pre prepared...something she could just put in the oven for dinner, thus allowing her more time with the children..and enjoy her vacation. Upon arrival, Jeff had prepared a roast, complete with potatoes and vegetables, and the best lasagna we have ever eaten! My wife loved that she just put in the oven, and went back to vacationing. All in all, an incredible experience and we can hardly wait for this years Winter vacation. I had planned on taking the Family to Hawaii this year for vacation, but by unanimous decision, we opted to return to Casa Della Rosa again this year! Only this year, my wife said we are hiring Jeff to prepare our meals nightly ( we found out after our stay, that he is available as a private chef for our entire stay). Thank you again Dr. Joe for an amazing vacation!!

Perfect Location+Private Beach=Perfect Vacation
We looked at so many vacation rentals that we got dizzy! We had never rented a home before and really did not know how to do it. In our search for a vacation home to rent we received an email back from Dr. Joe the owner explaining everything, including that on his listing was a video of the house(which we had missed) and that it takes 2 minutes to book the home. It took 2 minutes! Prior to our arrival Dr. Joe sent us information on restaurants, activities and a letter about some history of Palm Beach, so on arriving we already had our restaurants and activities basically picked out. So all we had to worry about was having a great vacation which we did! The private gated beach was fantastic! It is a 5 minute walk at the end of the street but do not forget the key to the gate as we did one morning. There was no one on the beach but my husband and children! The house had everything for the beach like towels, beach chairs, toys, rafts, cooler, umbrella and flip flops! This house is also about 5 houses from the Lake Trail which is about a 4-6 mile paved trail along Lake Worth (Intracostal waterway). We used the 3 bikes at the house and rented 2 extra bikes at the bike shop in Palm Beach for a reasonable price. The kitchen was very nice and had an indoor grill! The bedrooms were very comfortable. We have kids (17, 14, 12) and they all had a great time either on the beach, or on their bikes or the recreation center which is like 100 feet from the house and has all kinds of programs for the children. It was a great and relaxing vacation. The nice thing about the house was that there were not a bunch of little knick-knacks for our kids to break. We plan on coming next year and highly recommend this home to anyone.

Better than we could have hoped for!
As a very active/successful real estate broker in NYC, I can be as picky as the next person. That said, we found our experience at Casa Seaspray everything we had hoped for. Yes, I agree with some earlier reviewers that the house was a bit noisy being on a corner and the bedrooms were flooded with light in the mornings - but that is why God created sound machines, earplugs and night masks. The house was very clean and it felt like you were taking over a relative's home. Those expecting a hotel experience need to stay in a hotel. The owner's daughter even stopped by to see if everything was in order. Who could ask for more?
I did treat myself to a day at the Breakers Spa - which was as magical as it was expensive. If you are looking for a less expensive massage ($60), 15 minutes away is a place called Palm Beach Healing Massage in Haverhill, right pass the airport. It is run by a gal and a fellow named Philip Gagnon. I have never had a massage therapist work so diligently the balls of my feet and my jaw bones the way Philip did. It is worth the drive. Without a doubt, it was the best message I have ever had. And at age 61 - that is saying a lot!

Beautiful home, fantastic location, gorgeous beach!
Our family had such a wonderful stay in this very special home! The house is truly a Palm Beach treasure with its' antique wood floors, gourmet kitchen, relaxing porch... I could go on & on! Plenty of room for a big family to spread out and have privacy. We were so grateful to have the gated beach, so peaceful and private. The house was spotless when we arrived, with lots of beach toys and chairs... the kids never ran out of DVD's to watch during the rainy times, and everyone was content. My son was able to walk to the rec center around the corner to play basketball, where they also have tennis and camps for younger kids. We walked to Surfside Diner for some delicious lunches and also to Buccan for one of the best dinners we have ever had! The owner has been wonderful throughout the rental process, and clearly goes out of his way to make your visit special, even down to the custom soaps with "Casa della Rosa" printed on them! We hope to have the opportunity to visit again!

Amazing location, and gorgeous property!
My first time using VRBO, so I was a little nervous about renting the place. All my fears disappeared as soon as we got to the house! The keys were exactly where the renter said they would be. The house was very accommodating. Plenty of towels, plenty of dishware. The grill was connected through the natural gas of the house, and very clean! We all had an AMAZING time!!!
Dr. Joe had left us directions and suggestions to many nearby local eats, and the nearest Publix. The private access to the beach was really convenient!
The only complaint is that the downstairs AC did not work, but we were out of the house most of the day, and kept the windows open at night, so it wasn't that big of a deal.
I would DEFINITELY book this property every year for our event in West Palm Beach!

Great Palm Beach House
This is a spacious and very well equipped house, close to the Lake Trail and not too far from the beach. My family enjoyed their stay.
